Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Big Bird and Lexine run into Baby Bear, who's wearing a nice, new tie. He states his family will be visiting their grandmother and Papa Bear will be around any moment to pick up him. The two want to say the alphabet, but Baby Bear is unsure ("There's a lot of uncharted territory there."). He removes his tie so it won't get dirty as they all say the alphabet. He puts it back on, then immediately takes it off when he sees what's coming up...
